By PW Nutritionist Aleena Khusro

Gut health is a topic which nutrition professionals can’t seem to get enough of at the moment! Everyone seems to be discussing ways to improve gut health and flourish healthy bacteria.

But what are prebiotics and probiotics?

Probiotics are the ‘good bacteria’ in your gut! These can also be found in yoghurt or added to special blends, such as the one found in ‘The Slender Blend’.

Prebiotic foods are the fuel for these ‘good bacteria’ in your body! These are found in foods such as oats, bananas, apples etc. Consumption of these foods help to increase the number of healthy bacteria found in your gut.
